The music journalist Anders Beyer from the countrywide Danish newspaper
Information once wrote
about the young composer Michael Nyvang:
It sounds like a music that one has never heard before, Michael
Nyvang seems to be building himself up from scratch, rather than continuing an established tradition.
this came to the point of Michael Nyvang leaving the
narrow confines of contemporary classical music more or
less entirely to write stories, fiction, as well as
playing saxophone with friends: African music, improvisations,
flamenco and jazz.
Michael Nyvang’s music covers a large palette of
expressions and styles, from an hour long solo piece for piano,
over recorded and electro acoustic music to the
almost minimalist music in his original work
River and land
for the Hungarian instrument cymbalum, percussion and sound sources, which was first performed during the
international music festival in Marseilles, France
Les musiques 2006 by Françoise Rivalland.
He received a recognition of his sounds cinematic potential, when the Oscar winning Irish director Niel Jordan in 2009 licensed an electro acoustic composition for his movie Ondine. In 2009 he was commissioned to write original music for a play by Christophe Huysman presented at the official program during the international theater festival in Avignon.
